Luckily, we're not all affected by every single organization on earth. But the whole Angular ecosystem and community are affected by the Angular team management's decisions. The technical issues are one thing that many of us can agree on. Let's put them aside for a moment.

I'm sick to my stomach of learning about people leaving the Angular team with stories of ridicule, emotional abuse, harassment, being yelled at, being belittled and patronized. I feel sorry for Angular GDEs living in fear, afraid to speak up. Afraid for the consequences of making one wrong move in the eyes of whoever's influencing this program. Afraid of being harassed by their peers.
